COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Alyssa Thomas had her second triple-double in three games as No. 8 Maryland routed Wofford 110-53 in the Terrapin Classic semifinals on Saturday.

Thomas scored 18 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and added 10 assists for the fourth triple-double of her career and fifth in program history.

Shatori Walker-Kimbrough tied a career high with 17 points and hit a career-high four 3-pointers to help the Terrapins (11-1) post their highest point total of the season in their ninth-straight victory.

Brene Moseley and Tierney Pfirman each added 14 points for the Terps, which could stretch their winning streak to 10 in the tournament's championship Sunday before beginning ACC play next weekend at No. 10 North Carolina.

The Terrapins' last three victories have come by an average of 54 points.

Jordan Frazier scored 19 points for Wofford (2-9), which has now lost the first five games of a seven-game stretch away from home.

She was the only player with more than five points for the Terriers, who have lost 17 straight road contests dating back to last December.

Walker-Kimbrough, a freshman, bested her 3-point career mark by halftime to help Maryland effectively ensure victory by halftime.

Her first 3 came in an early 10-0 run that pushed the lead to 18-5. She hit two more in a 9-1 spurt that stretched it to 35-17, and her last, off a kickout feed from Brene Moseley, made it 56-28 to cap a 12-0 half-ending run.

It was more of the same after halftime, with Thomas hitting an inside basket and assisting on a pair of transition layups as the Terps stretched it to 70-30.

The Terps later pushed it to 85-35 on Sequoia Austin's 3-pointer, and Thomas got her key 10th assist inside the final two minutes with a feed to Pfirman.

Maryland guard Lexie Brown missed Saturday's game to attend to family issues, but is expected to return to the team for Sunday's game.
